For many companies, your copier is the workhorse of your office. When the copier is working, you don’t even notice it’s there.

However, even the best copier will eventually start to slow down. Maybe you start missing deadlines because the copier is down, or you start seeing lines on your copies. Often workarounds can be found for awhile, but it’s only a matter of time before they stop working.

So is it time to replace your copier? Here are the signs to look out for:

  • It Becomes a Security Risk – Copiers, if left unprotected can pose a risk. One basic, yet often overlooked step is changing the default password to something strong. Older machines don’t offer the latest security protocols. A lot of your company’s confidential information will eventually pass through the copier. New technology has the latest security features built-in.
  • It’s Getting Hard to Find Parts – Manufacturers support their tech for a couple of years after the last one is made. At some point, parts will become difficult to find and expensive to replace. As technology ages, it gets increasingly difficult and costlier to repair.
  • Per-Page-Costs Are Rising – Older machines are less efficient. They use more consumables and have a lower production rate. This can increase the per-page cost. Instead of spending more repairing your old technology, it can be more cost-effective to upgrade your technology.
  • New Technology Has Evolved – Technology that is just a couple of years old is already out of date. If you’re using technology that is more than 5 years old, you may be missing out. You’d be amazed how fast copier technology has evolved. Today, you can do all kinds of formatting and modifications that older technology just can’t handle. If your old machine is holding you back, schedule a demonstration to explore the possibilities!
  • You’re Wasting Resources – We all need to live more sustainably. New technology is more efficient. It uses less energy and creates less waste. With today’s copier technology, you can be both eco-friendly and cost-conscious at the same time.
